This is a bit of a step away from a traditional What I Ate Wednesday post but honestly I'm shocked that I've managed to stick to my themes for this long!
Today's extra special because Anika from Seattle blog Vegan Score came down to Brighton for the day to hang out and eat as much delicious vegan food as it's possible to squeeze into one day.
We hit up Terre à Terre for lunch and ordered the non alcoholic Terre à Verre menu which comes with a fruity cocktail of your choice, I chose the Lychee Blush.
Next you get a wonderful Terre à Tapas plate to share which is a beautiful selection of mini-dishes from around the menu. Today's tapas included cauli & binger bhajis, aubergine zhuganoush, ratatouille, wasabi cashews, beetroot soup with a nori dusted puffed rice seaweed cracker & deep fried spice dusted polenta cakes served with a chilli jelly. I'm sure there were also two other things that can't remember the names of.
You also get a bowl of their Chunky Hand Cut Chips with an avocado lime hash for dipping.
This meal is absolutely perfect for two people to share and we both loved eating it and discussing the dishes as we went along. We managed to squeeze in some Boho Gelato after a walk along the beach, I had coffee flavour and Anika had the last of the Peanut Butter Sea Salt Caramel - this is my very favourite gelato so I think I deserve props for suppressing my instincts, being a decent hostess and not rugby tackling my guest to the ground so that I could get to the last of it!
After more walking and a drink at my local pub we went to local sushi spot Moshimo's Vegan Challenge Night. They put this on every year and basically what happens is chefs from local restaurants get into Moshi's kitchen and battle it out to present the best sushi dish they can make. There are points for innovation, presentation and taste and it's always a fun night. I just got home and as I have a round up still to write for the official Vegan MoFo blog that write up will have to wait until tomorrow, catch ya then.
PS - I can't believe how fine I'm cutting this one, only 21 minutes until I'd have missed a day!
